Adia Victoria‘s latest album A Southern Gothic drops on Friday, she plays the XPoNential Music Festival this weekend, and today she released one last teaser of the album — a cover of Ernest B McTell’s “You Was Born To Die” featuring Margo Price, Jason Isbell, and Kyshona Armstrong.

In a press release, Victoria reflected on the signaficance of the track and her collaborators:

Last year the lessons I have learned on my walk in the blues—the business of love, lies, loss and spectacular death—surrounded my every waking though like armor. In a society that attempts so suppress death into the unspoken, the blues has allowed me to death in dance’s face and sing her entire name.“You Was Born To Die” is a celebration of the impermanence of any imprint we hope in vain to leave on this world. Like any blues worth the name, it is an invitation to stand apart and stare askew back on a world become ridiculous.I asked Kyshona and Margo Price to join me in the Blueswomen work of singing herself beyond the regard of their men.I invited Jason Isbell to join us in these blues because he make a guitar talk like it can speak to the devil.
